Barbra Streisand. Bette Midler. Cher. Sure, they’re all diva entertainers of a certain age but listing the specific qualities shared by these three gay faves would require an essay the length of an encyclopedia. Our favorite is easy, however. It’s the intense disgust they feel toward our current president, each in a distinct way similar to her vocal styling. Streisand, perhaps the most elegant and thoughtful of vocalists, seems to select each word as carefully as she coordinates a Donna Karan ensemble in shades of ecru. Midler’s persona has always been brash and confrontational and she’s not one to hold her tongue, even on Twitter. Cher has always danced to her own drummer and her Twitter posts which incorporate emojis is the social media equivalent of an outrageous costume she’d wear to the Oscars.
Thankfully, each lady has a sworn common enemy: our president’s agenda to turn back the clock on civil rights. These three icons are using their social media platforms in the most positive way imaginable — by letting their huge number of followers know that what 45 is doing is not normal.
Streisand has used her golden voice to write impressive editorials for HuffPo and, as an avid news junkie, she frequently retweets well-researched articles that reflect her own viewpoint. See of her more notable tweets shading Trump below.

Midler uses her peerless comedy chops to give Trump a pounding whenever she can. Here are a few of our favorites.

Trump denies calling White House a “dump” at his golf club. Who’m I gonna believe? 8 or 9 people who heard him or a man who lies every day?

Yesterday Trump spent day with American manufacturers. He wore a cowboy hat & pretended to drive a fire truck. Like most 4 year-old boys.

Shame on #DonaldTrump for scapegoating transgender servicemen and women. He swore he was their friend. A LIAR TO THE BONE.

Here’s how each responded to the president’s unconscionable decision to pardon notorious Sheriff Arpaio:
Midler screamed in ALL CAPS and multiple exclamation marks. We can relate.
THAT MOTHERFUCKER!!! the utterly repulsive President pardons a vicious racial profiler who has caused death and misery for years. #IMPEACH!
— Bette Midler (@BetteMidler) August 26, 2017
Cher retweeted an article that detailed all the blood on Arpaio’s hands.
How Many Inmates Died in Sheriff Joe Arpaio's Jails? Who Knows it's a Big Number.Arpaio & trump,murder incorporated. https://t.co/g8RRRQbLU0

Streisand hasn’t yet commented on this atrocity. Maybe she needed a temporary diversion, such as her new puppy.
